Auditions for 2021 Shakespeare Royal Oak
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Shakespeare Royal Oak announces auditions for our 2021 season as we plan our return to the park this summer!
Our main stage show will be A “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” directed by the talented Lynch Travis. The 2021 production will mark Mr. Travis’ directorial debut with SRO. Lynch is well known to audiences at Purple Rose, Meadow Brook, Williamston, JET, Detroit Public, Performance Network, and Bonstelle. And those are just some of the professional houses where he’s worked as an actor, director, or both.
Auditions for this production will take place virtually in accordance with health and safety protocols associated with live theatre.
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” will run five shows, Thursday, August 5 – Sunday, August 8, 2021.
Auditions will be virtual and held on May 23 and May 26. Actors should prepare one comedic Shakespeare speech (memorized) not to exceed four minutes total.
Shakespeare Royal Oak is committed to equity and diversity in our casting and hiring. We invite and encourage artists of all races, backgrounds, and cultures to audition and work with us. We support non-traditional casting and remain committed to consideration of all roles for all artists.
Enrich us with your talent.
Happy 20th Anniversary Shakespeare Royal Oak!
Shakespeare Royal Oak turned 20 last summer. Though we could not gather In The Park to celebrate together, our SRO Team collaborated with performers, crew, production staff, and audience members to create special premier messaging and performances to entertain you. Together, we made a Toast to our 20th Anniversary.
Tune in to our YouTube channel. Enjoy the performances and messages where we shared stories, snapshots, memories and moments from seasons past.
Thank you for helping us reach this milestone year. We look forward to returning to Starr Jaycee Park and sharing the beautiful words of the Bard with you on many more summer nights. Until that time …
